To the Editor: As residents of Groton we register strong opposition to placing “Groton – All Are Welcome – Town Meeting 2017” stone markers at the various eight major road entrances to the Town of Groton. The motion was passed by a majority vote of 140/113 at the May 1, 2017 Town Meeting following...
To The Editor, Having spent several years on the school committee, I learned very quickly that the bottom line to my job was service to our children. THE CHILDREN WERE THE BOTTOM LINE. I’d like to transfer that philosophy and ask this question: What might be the bottom line for our Town Fathers,...
Dear Editor, I want to thank the voters who have entrusted me with a seat on the Board of Selectmen.  I look forward to having an active role in collaborative and respectful discussions on the many issues facing our community. I appreciate the many who voted and the folks who have reached out to me...
Dear Editor, Congratulations to our two new Selectmen (as a conservative, but not a misogynist, I believe in using the classical generic terminology; “mankind” is fine with me) Allison Manugian and Becky Pine!

To My Supporters, I want to thank all my supporters and those who voted for me. I have enjoyed every minute I have had the privilege to serve you. I congratulate the two new women on the Board. You ran a good race. My only regret is that the funding for the design for a new Senior Center had the...
To the Editor, To all who voted NO on a design for the senior center: SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!! Your NO vote sends a very clear message to the senior citizens who, by the way, are taxpayers. Your NO vote tells us – YOU ARE NOT IMPORTANT !!!!! All the time and money, my understanding is $70,000., to...
To The Editor, With regard to the recently passed “All Are Welcome” Stone Marker Article, it appears that Groton has now established a precedent where private groups that can attract enough supporters to attend town meeting will be able to place “privately funded” stone markers with a message of...
Dear Neighbors, On Tuesday, May 16th we can bring change to the Board of Selectmen. It is a rare sight to see three new candidates asking for a seat at the table, but a great opportunity for our town. I have been asked throughout the campaign season to comment on who might give Groton the best...
